Holocaust in Serbia 1941-1944
Under patronage of the Serbian Government and United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNSECO), the Museum of Yugoslav History will set up an exhibition Holocaust in Serbia 1941-1944 which will be a central manifestation of the State programme for commemorating the International Memorial Day for Victims of the Holocaust.
The exhibition will be open on 27 January at 14:00 by the Minister of Labour and Social Policy, Mr. Rasim Ljajic.
The exhibition represents the first project of its kind in our country since the end of World War II. It will put on display the most important aspects of the Holocaust that took place on territory of Serbia between 1941 and 1944.
Visitors will be able to perceive the phenomenon of the Holocaust in Serbia and see the survivors’ testimonies which will be presented thanks to the understanding of the Shoah Foundation founded by director Stephen Spielberg.
On 1 November 2005, Resolution of the General Assembly of the United Nations declared 27 January as the International Memorial Day for Victims of the Holocaust. On that day, in 1945, the allied troops of the Red Army liberated the biggest death camp in the course of the Second World War – Auschwitz–Birkenau in Poland. It is estimated that during several war years, between 1.200.000 and 1.500.000 people were killed in this death camp.
